Not sure what to say?

Betty was my absolute favorite aunt from as early as I can remember. I loved her so very good. We traveled all over U.S. together and met in Germany for a lovely vacation abroad.
Yes, she was the Biscuit making Queen of the whole world and finest cook I ever have known.
She was a realist who let people live their lives as they chose as she lived hers the same. She will be greatly missed by all but I know she is home in the BIG Biscuit Pan in the Sky with her siblings, parents, son...

I worked with Betty for many years. Loved her so much. She was direct in her comments & spoke her mind openly. I loved that about her & it made her sense of humor that much funnier. She kept us laughing. She made our long shifts shorter with her unpredictability. We loved her and she looked after us younger generation like we were her own children. I will be praying for your peace & comfort during this most difficult time.

My deepest condolences may God lift you all up during this time and hold you in his everlasting love.

Betty, you were one special lady who was full of love, laughter, joy, and you lived life to the fullest. Rest In Peace

I'm so sorry, Betty was a good friend to all my family. She will be missed.

So sorry ... ❤

May God grant you guidance, strength at this very difficult time.
